Well "those" you spoke with really weren't paying very close attention then. While it wasn't a large score disparity it wasn't really that close of a call especially statistically.  Marshall

Someone from Whitehouse complaining about class and sportsmanship... That's irony. Sports or not.

Why be a douche about it?  Nac doesn’t pick their district.  They compete where they are put... and they dominate.  just say congrats and move on.  Don’t see the point in trying to lessen thei

They're as good as advertised...They have a DE I think that is a favorite for Defensive MVP of the District and more.

He is a stud but I am anxious to see how they play against a team that can match up with them

That might have to be something you see in December 😂 not sure a team in this district can match up...i agree though if it is gonna happen it will happen when they play Marshall or PT. 

PT played Marshall like it was the State game and from what I've read the Mavericks thought the PT that most everyone in East Texas Schedules on Home Coming week was gonna show up...I think Marshall is better than they looked and may have tried some things against a team they thought they could experiment against and it backfired, but I also think that everyone should see that this isn't the same PT anymore, and its not a once in a generation team. Maybe the culture that Coach Lane has been trying to bring over from his Buckeyes days has finally taken root in PT.

I’m reserving declaring PT a district power until I see how they perform without DJ Freeman next season and seasons going forward  

If they can win without him..... declare PT an annual district contender.   If they fall off a cliff without him..... status quo, really. 

But without a doubt.... the 2020 Pirates seem legit.   They have a fantastic team.

I agree and they will not be able to replace him next year, I will also agree if you want to say HE is the "once in a generation" player at PT, last one was probably a Super Bowl Champion named Chris Johnson who I think graduated in 1999. But everyone who has followed East Texas Football the last 20 years knows that PT gets scheduled for most every school's homecoming/senior night game and I don't think that is the case anymore and I don't think it will be that way once Dj is gone. There's a difference in building a program and building a team that can compete for a few years and it looks like Coach Lane has done that.

They do not have a QB on JV that will replace him, now I think they have a Wideout that played QB last year on JV that was pretty good. I have no idea what's on their freshman team. JV QB threw 5 passes last night with 4 Picks and an incompletion.

A mix of Pine Tree having a once in a 20 year team and Marshall losing tons of talent from graduation over the past few years. I don't remember the last time we've had 6 or so former players playing D1 football at the same time. 

Marshalls offense didn't show up and PT was playing like it was their super bowl. I'm surprised we held that offense to only 24 points as bad as the offense played.

I think we will see a more motivated and physical team the rest of the season. We all need a good punch in the mouth from time to time. We werent even practicing with pads until after the PT loss. 

This is really PT’s best team (potentially) in over 40 years. 1976 team went 2 deep back when 14 games won state for you. I don’t know if they have ever been 2-deep before. We were ranked #4 that year (I was a junior) and PT was #6 when we beat them 22-21 on a last second 18 yd field goal by QB Mark Beall (of the Beall’s department store family). Largest crowd ever at Tomato Bowl. Little help here from PT fans if they’ve been deeper in playoffs that what I cited.

If i had to guess who the starter will be next year at QB, its gotta be the backup to Dj this year, he is only a Junior and will probably see the 1st string Qb reps in Spring.

Dont get me wrong on this part, DJ is a great Qb and has done alot for that program, but lets not forget he had a couple REALLY good receivers his Sophmore & Junior years with Sparkman and Adams both are playing college ball now at Texas Tech and I believe A&M Commerce so I cant say a successor Qb will need to throw like Dj because as most of us that have seen him play know, its not the throwing that keeps Defensive Coordinators worried.

I may be wrong but i think they went 2 games deep in 1999 and lost, again not 100% sure on that.

 

Nice information though I know the 2000's were not a good time for PT to play at the Tomato Bowl 😂 #McCowns

LOL! Yeah, and the next gen MCCowns are here. Randy’s son Ryan is our JV QB and he threw for 348 and 4 TDs last night in a 45-38 loss to Marshall. He also had 3 TDs dropped. There are 5 more MCCowns coming after him.

Human Cheat Code Numbers!! That's awesome for Jacksonville, I'm sure their name will get them some looks and hopefully their play will get them a chance at the next level.

Lufkin wins one heck of a Pillow fight in Overtime over New Caney. 13-7. 
 

We lost Caleb Berry for the season it looks like early 2nd qtr or late 1st. Can’t remember. Last I heard he was at hospital for X-rays on his ankle. 
 

Offense was atrocious without him and had 4 turnovers. Defense saved the day. But doesn’t appear to matter moving forward. Lufkin is going nowhere fast.

Texas High 56 Hallsville 17

McHenry had 6 TD passes & Cellers 4 TD receptions enroute to the win. Hallsville’s offense started fast, but completely shutdown in second half. Tigers moved the ball on the ground and in air in a balanced offense.

Ugly win over Jacksonville 42-21.

A win is a win..... but man.... 

How do you complain about a 21 point win?

But when you see so many mistakes...... you know it could have/should have been by so much more.

Now we get Texas High.

Texas High is (5-0).  Their opponents are a combined (5-19)
Marshall is (3-2).  Their opponents are a combined (14-11-1) 

We are gonna be massive underdogs this week..... pulling for the huge upset

Very ugly win by Marshall. Completely disgusted with the lack of sportsmanship they displayed. Heard this about them before but that was awful to watch. Great athletes but hope they get that fixed because that trash isn't fun to watch.

Coming from a Whitehouse fan?????  LMAOOOOOOOOO!!!  

Especially one in denial about the antics his (multiple sports) teams AND FANS are KNOWN for doing.

NEXT.

It was chippy last night night..... from both sides.

AND Calling it "Chippy" on both sides is BS!! I think JAX is just responding to that ####. What do you think 16-17 year old kids are going to do?? I've seen them play early this season and never saw anything that would be close to a 15 yard penalty.

The Rawls ejection was reversed.  He can play Friday Vs Texas High. 

Yeah. So dirty they reversed it. 🙄🙄🙄

Go crawl back into your hole with the rest of your Whitehouse people.

Jacksonville should have had an ejection last night.  Even the Jax radio guys we’re making jokes about it. They even admitted he should have been tossed.

Wonder why my comments keep getting deleted?? This has nothing to do with WH. I was at the game watching a kid. 0 coaches talked to the mavs athletes about their taunting for 4 quarters! It was AWFUL to watch. I've seen JAX play earlier this year and that never happened till last night.

Yes he should have been ejected. BUT Again, that is their response from Marshall trash talk and taunting all night. Guarantee JAX won't have the issues they had last night again this season.

So Jax was just reacting to Marshall and that’s OK....

But Marshall reacting to the pisspoor officiating they got all night isn’t? 

Both teams were jawing. Both got chippy. It’s a fact. 

Marshall was chippy in the first half after stinking the place up coupled with some atrocious calls against them. 

Jax was chippy in second half after the game started slipping away from them and we shut them down offensively. 

Take off the team colored glasses. 

Both teams showed some ugliness. Even the Jacksonville Angels.
